More SOE Email Pain

I was just poking fun at SOE’s email marketing when I received yet another example of it.

According to the header, this item came from gandalf.sony-online.com at 16:24 EST on Monday, March 5th.

Subject: Saga of Heroes – Double Experience Weekend and Game Update 1

So not only did I get another marketing email from SOE that was blank and lacking a backup method to view whatever it was that got stripped out along the way, it was sent after the end of the event it was pushing.  The Double Experience Weekend ended at 8am EST on Monday, March 5th according to Silky Venom.

I suppose the Game Update 1 information would still be useful, except that I did not get any with this email.

I do wish they would get their act together on this sort of thing.  After all, I actually signed up to get this information.

Isle of the Fae

So Blintz flies out to the Isle of the Fae in the Enchanted Lands, thinking perhaps this might be the place to hang out.  But when he got there, the inhabitants all seemed rather monochromatic.
